FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE Release Notes
FreeBSD is an operating system used to power modern servers, desktops, and embedded platforms.

I’ve been following 13.0 starting around the same time last year. It was my coming back to FreeBSD after few years break. I instantly felt at home with it and I also wanted to use all the things “my way”. I customized /etc/make.confand /etc/src.conf, I switched to git repositories whenever they were available etc. All the fun stuff. FreeBSD behaved on my NUC rock solid all the time – I did bring some rain onto myself (you can’t avoid it when you mess around with bleeding edge), but never to a degree that wouldn’t be recoverable (thank goodness for bectl) this way or another. At some point this year I started preparing for this release and was going more and more towards defaults and eventually I switched back to freebsd-update and portsnap. Being able to do these things without a hitch is a testament of how good of operating system FreeBSD is. Now go try it out!
